Help Conduct A Talent Show For Mentally & Physically Challenged Kids


There are several avenues for normal children to express their talent and creativity like school competitions, reality shows, live stage shows, etc. But there are very few platforms for special children to showcase their skills. This inspired us, the members of Puducherry Nadana Iyakkunargal Sangam (Pondicherry Dance Director's Association), to start this annual initiative for mentally and physically challenged kids.


What is Nayagan Maatru Kalaivizha?

This grand cultural event was started in 2011 in Pondicherry and since then it has become an annual gathering for special children. The kids get a professional stage to exhibit any talent they have like:
  • drama
  • music 
  • dance
  • gymnastics
  • yoga, etc.
This year, over 300 mentally and physically challenged kids from various special schools around Pondicherry, Villupuram, Cuddalore and Thindivanam districts in Tamil Nadu will be participating.


How does this talent show help the special kids?

Our team is committed to organizing this show every year as the joy we see on the faces of the special kids cannot be expressed in words.
  • they feel proud and accepted when a large audience witnesses their performance
  • the show gives the kids a lot of confidence and boosts their self-esteem
  • as this is not a competition, all the kids are made to feel like winners

How can you support this wonderful cause?

We have amazing volunteers to execute the program, but we also need financial support to create a memorable experience for the children. The cost estimated for organizing this year's event in November is INR 2,58,000. Below is the breakup for the expenses:


We look forward to your support in making this event a grand success! A small contribution from your end can create a life-changing experience for a talented special kid.
